Cambridge Judge Business School was the first leading business school in the UK to recognise that the unique challenges facing professional firms needed a specialised set of executive education programmes. Our professional service firm leader programme attracts a very wide range of senior professionals from a very wide range of firms.
The programme addresses some of the key issues facing leaders of professional firms today, including setting and executing strategy, what are the right leadership behaviours in a professional firm context, how to improve collaboration with your teams that you lead in the firm, thinking about culture and values and their importance, and also thinking about the challenges of needing to become more innovative in the face of an increasing pace of technological change.
The course is set up really well. It’s a compact course. Its content was really relevant to where we felt the challenges were as a firm.
I’ve already made quite a lot of notes about active ways in which I think I can make a difference with my teams and, indeed, my own contribution to the management team. So it’s already provided me with ideas about how to do things differently.
Over the last three days, we’ve done sessions on strategy, on thinking as teams, being effective leaders, and from each of those sessions, I’ve had furious notes and takeaways of what I can do to make sure that my team is running as efficiently and effectively as possible.
There’s a wonderful learning experience both in the classroom and out. I think the course has very much also given me a whole range of tools in terms of collaborating and sharing ideas.
Everyone on the course has also been very interesting, and it’s been very interesting hearing their contributions from their own businesses.
I would absolutely recommend it to my fellow colleagues. I’m going to have a hard time trying not to reteach it as we have meetings.
I will certainly be suggesting that my other colleagues who are on the executive committee should attend this course. I wish I’d come attended it five years ago.
